The Holy Empire of Mini Thembria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaguya Hime with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.178 billion Mini Thembrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkansas. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Mini Thembrian economy, worth 173 trillion Steams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 24,112 Steams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genetic research has been halted, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances, and people spend a lot on hair and nails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mini Thembria's national animal is the Snow Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Niceness.

Mini Thembria is ranked 215,023rd in the world and 336th in Forest for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -13.25 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
